OSB vs Plywood Decking?

Posted by Greg on January 24th, 1998 11:14 PM

Hopefully, withing the next month I will begin construction
on a new home. Some lumber suppliers are suggesting that I
use 7/16" OSB instead of 5/8" plywood for my roof decking
since it is less expensive. They say the structural ratings
of 7/16 OSB is the same as 5/8 plywood. That is hard for me,
of little experience, to believe. I want what will be best and
will provide a straight, smooth roofline for the rest of my
life. What has experience shown the pro's?
